Grain and Nut Free Granola from The Paleo Kids Cookbook

Grain and Nut Free Granola from The Paleo Kids Cookbook by Jennifer Robins | www.VibrantLifeArmyWife.com

I was never much of a cereal eater growing up. I’d have the occasional box of Fruit Loops (or “shoe poops” as I called them) when camping, but generally my mom wouldn’t let us eat cereal because it was too “sugary.” Man, my mom was a smart lady. I should say is a smart lady because she’s still pretty smart.So it wasn’t really until college that I started eating cereal. I don’t know what it is about cereal and college but they seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly, or bacon and eggs, or cheese and anything else. I’m guessing it’s that it’s so cheap and that you don’t have to do anything to prepare it that appeals to the poor lazy college kid. At least I think that’s why it appealed to me.

But when I started working from home, I stopped meal prepping because I figured, since I was home, I could just cook my meals in the moment when I was hungry.  Continue reading

Root Beer Floats for Two

“You know, a lot of people go to therapy to deal with stuff, but I say a good root beer float can fix just about anybody” -Peyton Sawyer

I’ve been watching One Tree Hill on Netflix lately. It’s my current binge-watch-show of choice (along with Parenthood, but I’m only allowed to watch that when my mom is around so she can watch too). It’s been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster all over again. Of course I’ve seen it all before, but I forgot how soap opera-esque this show was. It kills me. But I tend to agree with Peyton, that a good root beer float can fix just about anybody. Continue reading
